Notebook: Fire Everyone in the KU Athletics Administration

Day after day, alone on a hill; The man with the foolish grin is sitting perfectly still

NCAA Basketball: Texas at Kansas Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

Matt Baty, who is the associate athletics director in charge of fundraising for Kansas Athletics (aka the Williams Fund), is blaming the fans, supporters, and donors instead of the administration taking responsibility for bad coaching hires. He says the fan base is the main problem with Kansas football because (heaven forbid) they demand wins, and that if KU would only keep a coach for more than three years things would be better.

Because apparently firing incompetent coaches is the problem, not hiring them in the first place. As if David Beaty is going to turn into Urban Meyer if we give him two more years. Criminy.

The stupidity and incompetence of the leadership in this athletic department is staggering. Fire everyone.

Kansas safety Mike Lee, one of KU’s most outspoken trash-talkers, is enjoying playing with former teammate Corione Harris again.

Here are some burning offseason football questions that a KU fan tries to tackle. FYI, needs moar Jeff Monken in the “If not Beaty, then who?” section.

CBSSports’ Ben Kercheval comes up with an interesting way of ranking college football coaches - but not all of them. Shocker, David Beaty didn’t make any of the lists.

May the Fourth be with you.
